Chapman University has initiated a nationwide poll on what strikes fear in Americans. The Chapman University Survey on American Fears included 1,500 participants from across the nation and all walks of life. The research team leading this effort pared the information down into four basic categories: personal fears, natural disasters, paranormal fears and drivers of fear behavior. According to the Chapman poll, the number one fears in America today are corruption of government officials and cyberterrorism.
This is the second annual survey of American Fears conducted by Chapman University.
